After reviewing the new Mary Kay Semi-Matte Gel Lipsticks last week I was super excited to dig into the rest of the fall collection. The brand is really stepping up their game when it comes to packaging and formulas and these stunning new pigments will give you the confidence to strut down your own metaphorical runway and embrace the season fashionably!
You know a palette is impressive when you slip it out of the box and literally gasp at its beauty. Say hello to the dazzling Rock The Runway Palette with 5 jaw-dropping hues in a range of dazzling finishes including shimmer, glitter and metallic. I love every bright, eye-catching shadow in this little compact, especially the vibrant Midas gold, bold blue and brilliant silver.
The texture is smooth and a tad creamy for easy application and the formula has great pigmentation so you can tone things down or increase the intensity. The bronzy-gold packs the most potent punch of glitter and even though the sparkle does dim down a bit after the first layer, it still looks gorgeous! If you are looking for a stand-out palette for events, everyday glam, provocative smokey looks and even the holidays, this one is great quality, travel-friendly and beautiful! It retails for $26.00.
Sticking with the theme of striking eye makeup, I think beauty junkies will fall head-over-heels for the new Gel Liner Duo! The cap has a built-in brush that is easy to manoeuvre for adjusting line thickness and there are two remarkable hues – shimmery metallic gold and sultry bronze. I wouldn’t personally pair these shades with the eye shadows above as it may be a bit too much fabulousness for my eyelids, but you can get as creative as you dare!
The liners have a creamy consistency which helps the pigment glide across the skin and they are very buildable with the precision of a pencil and the intensity of a liquid. Once set, the formula is quite durable and although it isn’t water-resistant, it takes quite a bit of disruption for it to fade. If you love the dramatic liner trend that is very popular right now, you will probably want to get your hands on this! It retails for $20.00.
The Nail Lacquers in the collection match perfectly with the other products and the colors are simply exquisite! There are 3 hues in the range – Gold is Bold, Blue Debut (a rich navy) and Rosy Encore which plays into the rose gold trend. The shimmer finish is not one of those thin, transparent types of glitter infusions that require multiple layers to fill in sparse areas. It applies opaque and consistent with a rich formula that is easy to work with and I love the chrome-like finish! The polish retails for $10.00 each.
Since these products are limited edition you might want to grab them quickly when they become available on August 16.
The last two products are not a part of this particular collection but they will help maintain your radiant complexion through the next two seasons. The Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks are marvelous because they are small enough for travel and offer versatile coverage so you can from subtle accents to dramatic high-impact strobing. Unlike most stick highlights, these glide on smoothly with a cream-like feel for easy application but they don’t have the dense, slickness of a cream. The texture is non-sticky and the finish is more like a ultra lightweight powder with fabulous, even coverage. You can glide the pigment on directly from the tubes or use your finger and there are 2 shades available – Bronze and Gold, both equally impressive. The highlights retail for $14.00 each or $25.00 for both!
